Queens Library in Partnership with The Louis Armstrong House Museum and The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Louis Armstrong’s original recording of the iconic song ‘What a Wonderful World.’ This is a song inspired by the Great Satchmo’s life in Queens – a song that still inspires millions of people around the world!

Experts and archivists from the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, Queens will offer Queens Library customers a unique, insider’s view of the Great Satchmo’s life and times; his incredible artistic achievements, his extensive travels around the world that fostered an unparalleled universal following, and his undeterred love for Queens and its people will come to life through this multimedia presentation that will include rarely seen archival material, pictures, film, and recordings. Q&A with the audience to follow.
